Introduction: Re-use Wrapping Paper Bunting
Here for #SustainableSurrey Christmas we have shown how to make easy Christmas bunting with your left over wrapping paper.
Step 1: Gather Your Supplies
You will need:
- Cello tape
- Left-over wrapping paper
- Card template
- White paper
Step 2: Draw Your Triangles
Taking your template, draw out 15 bunting tringles trying to waste as little paper as possible.
Step 3: Cut Out Each Triangle
Once they are all drawn out, cut out each triangle carefully with scissors.
Step 4: Folding
Fold each triangle top to make it flat with a flap as seen in the picture
Step 5: Letters
Next, measure out the size of the letters you want. Ours are 8cmx8cm.
Step 6: Cutting Out Letters
After, on 8cmx8cm paper squares, draw and cut out each letter spelling out 'MERRY CHRISTMAS'
Step 7: Sticking the Letters
Next, using a glue stick, glue each letter onto one of the bunting triangles in the middle.
Step 8: Taping the Triangles
Using the sting, cello tape and triangles, start to tape each triangle onto the string by taping the string on the fold then tape the fold down. Repeat this for each triangle with a 15cm gap between each triangle.
Step 9: Hang It Up
Finally, cut the string around 20cm on each end and hang up where it is desired.
